Properly destructive Detroit Northern Soul on the most gorgeous label ever!

The first 45 on this tiny Detroit label who only achieve 3 releases, all of which are highly collectable with this example the only one with elaborating designed standout in a crowd label-art.

But this rare disc is so much more than just a pretty face, an out of control juggernaut is about to crash into you living room.

Brutal drumming instantly widens your eyes, instantly exploding further as a searing girl group jumps into action. Shockingly potent real-deal classic style Northern Soul is about to disarm you. As Al Hughes’s roaring vocal starts its defiant assault.

A snarling “Take It Or Leave It” is the message, no room for compromise as the barrage of brass ensures there’s no time to think, pause, reconsider or negotiate...just “Take It Or Leave It”

Proper high-octane Northern Soul with no brakes..
